2008 was a fast moving year, full of joys and sorrows, gifts and loss. I am not sorry to see it go.
I have great hope for 2009. Hope for this country, for my family and loved ones, for us all.
A good friend and I shared lunch today and talked of how as we are aging, we are not as willing to accept people or situations that are unpleasant to us anymore. We hold our tongues more and let others make their own choices. We are learning to just be still and find some inner peace.
Here's hoping that 2009 brings to all of us more creativity, love, and peace.
